Jane Street Quantitative Researcher Full-time Graduate Role
Jane Street are looking for Quantitative Researchers to help build models, strategies, and systems that price and trade a variety of financial instruments. Their proprietary trading models help identify profitable opportunities and decide whether to execute trades on thousands of financial products each day across 200 trading venues around the world. Since the models leverage both powerful internal technology and a deep understanding of the markets, Quantitative Researchers at Jane Street are expected to collaborate closely with Software Engineers and Quantitative Traders. In this role, you’ll work together to identify market signals, analyse large datasets, build and test models, create new strategies, and write the code that implements them. The problems you'll work on rarely have clean, definitive answers. You should be comfortable pushing in new and unknown directions while maintaining clarity of purpose. We believe great solutions come from the interaction between diverse groups of people across the firm. The role you carve out for yourself over time will be largely dependent on your strengths and the types of problems you enjoy thinking about.
You should be: Able to apply logical and mathematical thinking to all kinds of problems Intellectually curious—asking great questions is more important than knowing all the answers. A strong programmer who is interested in learning to write code in OCaml, even if you’ve never done functional programming before. An open-minded thinker and precise communicator who enjoys interacting with colleagues from a wide range of backgrounds and areas of expertise. Fluent in English.
Bachelor degree or higher. You do not need a background in finance or any other specific field to apply and be considered for this role— we’re looking for smart people who enjoy solving interesting problems. We’re more interested in how you think and learn than what you currently know.
90% reimbursement for work-related continuing education. We provide global medical, dental, optical, and travel insurance at no cost for employees and their dependents.
